Drogba is like really handsome. And I love football. :D

In cricket, people often talk about "sticking in the game": just hanging on and hanging on until a chance comes. That's what Chelsea have done in this amazing run: they have stuck in the game and stuck in the game and stuck in the game until there were no more games, and they were champions of Europe. It's a stunning triumph of the human spirit; and, for Roberto Di Matteo, one of the great football fairytales.

They never quit. They also had a bit of good fortune in playing Bayern Munich when they were having an off day. It made for a very exciting final.

Now that Didier's officially leaving Chelsea for Shanghai, this turned into a nostalgic picture overnight.

And David Villa has just tweeted he's too injured to play in Copa del Rey for Barca or Euros, so Spain's team will have an uphill battle to try and defend. Hmmm.

On the USA domestic scene: it's USOC (United States Open Cup) time! The Ft Lauderdale Strikers opened their quest Tuesday night, in the rain, against tier 4 (PDL) Fresno Fiero at Lockhart Stadium in front of "crowd" of 297....:rolleyes:

Final score? Strikers 7 - 2 Fresno. To their credit Fresno fought the good fight until the 55th minute when the Strikers scored to break a 1-1 tie. In the next few minutes they broke the game open with 3 more quick goals. Fresno scored again in the 83rd minute which seemed to make the Strikers angry. They scored 2 more goals in the next 7 minutes to ice the win.

Fresno's out & the Strikers go to California to play the MLS San Jose Earthquakes next Tuesday. Hopefully the Strikers will acquit themselves well & not come home with a reversal of the Fresno score. Maybe well get lucky and actually win the game.

Whoa, USMNT kicked some Scottish kilts yesterday, with a 5-1 victory in JAX. Landon with a hat trick and Michael Bradley with an outstanding strike from distance.

For the first time I think we are seeing the impact of Klinnsman on this team. Great play from midfield IMO. True test will be Wednesday against Brazil.

Sol Champbell has told English fans to stay home and wath the footie on tv. And while a BBC crew was filming a football match, a group of asian football fans of he local them were cornered and beaten. Euro 2012 sounds like a success already.

Just a few items of note; for one thing another footie scandal in raging in Italy, while the national team cancelled a planned friendly due to the earthquake. Oh yeah, and the transfer season is on.

SJ 'quakes 2 v 1 Strikers. Strikers out of USOC. Most other NASL teams advance.

Spain will be without David Silva for Euro 2012 but still beat S. Korea 3-1. The Englsh will be without Fank Lampard and someone named Jordan Henderson will replace him.

What's wrong with Silva? He played well in the friendly against South Korea & I haven't heard anything about him missing Euros. David Villa is not recovered enough from his broken leg to play and Cesc Fabregas has an injury of his own, so I'm hoping Silva's ok.

Must be disappointing for Lampard to miss Europeans, especially since I'm not sure how likely he is to still be around for the next World Cup. Would be v. nice if he does, though!
